What’s Next: Are You Ready To Ride The Wave?

with No Comments

One thing I've learned while profiling content creators for my book, #100Pitches: Mistakes I’ve Made So You Don’t Have To, is that you have to have a “what’s next” plan.

You have a project that is your baby! You spend all of your time working on that baby and don't think about what comes next. There isn't anything wrong with pouring so much into the project that you love so much, but you can't stop there; you can't pour ALL into it.

For one content creator, in particular, not having a plan in place for the future; the bigger picture, left her hanging in the balance without anything to do to further her career. That executive producer told me that not having a plan was a true downfall for her because she didn't ride the wave she was on after producing two successful reality shows. She simply didn't take an advantage of the momentum she had.

We have to be ready to ride the wave!

I think one person who has done well in this area is Issa Rae. Issa is riding the wave and boy is it a good wave!

Considering this, ask yourself, "If my baby was picked up on air or finally in theaters, what would I do next?"

Are you ready yo ride the wave?

Congrats Issa on your pipeline!
